Lowell will drop off soon (as he does every year) and Colon has destroyed my ERA & WHIP.

Safe to say he's THE biggest bust of this past off-seasons FAs.


nice trade ;-D

Word on the streets is that Colon has lower back problems


Of course he has back problems, his spine has problems supporting all that weight!

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I am very thankful that I benched him today. With those 7 ER, it would have been ugly. I think I am going to have to finally click that drop button. He does not look like he will improve at all. I keep on saying, next start will be the turning point. Well??? :-t

Don't drop him; he'll come around.

He'll be on my bench next time out, though.

And his first two starts were so good!
I'm back. Sorta.

I went to the game in Anaheim against the Yanks, and my wife who doesn't follow much baseball thought he was a coach during the pre-game! She couldn't believe someone so BIG could actually do anything of value for a team!

He is ridiculously over weight, and it HAS to be affecting his game. Oh well, good riddance Mr.Colon, welcome aboard Barry!

Everyone considering dropping him, at least wait untill interleague games are through. He has been lights out against the NL in his career.

In addition to being out of shape and saddled with a twingy back, I think there's something else wrong here. His ball just does not have any life, it's flattening out in the strike zone. This has DL written all over it at some point soon.

For the record, don't drop him. People considered doing it last year, and he turned it around.
